I will say I am so split on this series that it is another exhaustion. The story is well thought out and the performance excellent. However, the story pounds on your head with depression and hopelessness, coupled with the overall length of the series and book, that you just feel that you should consult a therapist. It really is too much. I might suggest the first book to anyone, but I would suggest only those with bright lives and brighter personas buying anymore of the series. It really is too much. As a warning to others, I would have rated the story 2 stars, but it is very well put together and unworthy of such a harsh judgement. I will give Mr. Williams another shot with other stories, but I suspect that this style of pathetic life and depression is more his story-telling style, than this specific story.

I love long audiobooks that I can listen to for hours at a time while doing other things, and Memory, Sorrow and Thorn was one my all time favorites from when I was younger, so I was thrilled when this series was finally released on audiobook.
However I could not stand the voices the narrator uses for many of the characters. He gives some of them atrocious accents and others like the Sithi and trolls, he uses the same awful raspy, whispering voice that did not seem to fit at all. It was hard not to wince or groan every time I heard their voices. The result is that I couldn't listen to this book for more than a little while at a time, even though I still like the actual content. He basically ruined the whole audiobook series for me, and I'm extremely disappointed to see he's also going to be narrating the new books coming out in 2017. For those books I'll definitely be sticking to the print editions unless they find a better narrator.
